Popsicle is a popular brand of ice pop in the United States and Canada and became a genericized trademark for any type of ice pop due to its popularity. The first ice pop was created by accident in 1905 when 11-year-old Frank Epperson left a glass of homemade soda on his porch on a very cold San Francisco night. The next morning he went to go get the soda and it was frozen. Using the stirring stick that he had also left in the glass, he pulled it out and tried it. “Popsicle” is a trademark held by Unilever. Also it is very easy to find different popsicle molds. Strawberries and peaches are amazing out of hand. They taste even better with a splash of coconut milk.
4 ounces chopped strawberries
1 peach, roughly chopped
6 ounces (3/4 cup) light unsweetened coconut milk
natural sweetener to taste
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flake
Chocolate chips: dark, milk or white
a dash of ground ginger
Put strawberries and peach in a small sauce pan over medium high heat with 1 tablespoon of water. Bring to a boil, partially cover pot then reduce heat to medium. Cook for about 5 minutes until fruit is soft, stir occasionally. Remove from heat let mixture cool. Mix fruit with coconut milk and purée in blender or food processor until smooth.
Put a pinch of coconut flake in popsicle molds. Fill pop containers with purée, gently press another pinch of coconut on before you add the stick. Wrap with foil and pierce with popsicle sticks. Freeze for about 2 hours or until solid.
If you do not have popsicle molds you can use dixie cups instead.
